The Civil Rights movement succeeded for several reasons. Television helped gain supporters for the movement. TV showed how some blacks were being treated. Take bloody Sunday for example. Many blacks were injured for doing a peaceful march in the streets. This event was shown on TV, and many Americans were appalled at what they saw. Great leaders of the civil rights movement like Martin Luther King Jr. contributed to the success of the movement. The Civil Rights movement was very organized also. Strategies such as sit-ins, bus boycotts, freedom rides, and marches were organized, so many civil rights believers participated.
